Madeleine L’Engle is an author with whom I have enjoyed a long and fruitful (though one-way) relationship. From the early years with her science fiction for children to the later pilgrimages through the linked worlds of faith, science and art, she has rarely failed to both inspire and engage me. It was, therefore with heavy heart that I read news of her death.
Thanks for all of your stories, words and wisdom, Madeleine. May they enrich many generations to come.
